ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 



The acreage, production and value statistics In this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The 
county and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food 
and Resource Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The State 
Markets Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the County Agents of the 
University of Florida's Extension Service, were also very helpful In supplying area and 
county Information, Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of 
the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service, 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, 
Florida Sweet Com Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Com 
Exchange, and North Florida Growers Exchange, Sales agencies and transportation firms 
provided the Inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic 
data used in developing these official statistics. 

The public spirited cooperation of these Individuals and groups Is appreciated.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS — Seasonal estimates are made 
for most vegetable, melon, potato, and strawberry crops 
to show supplies for a shorter period of time than the en- 
tire marketing season. This bulletin combines all seasons 
into a single crop year except for potatoes. The seasonal 
classification used for each crop is shown on the preceding 
page along with usual planting and harvesting dates, 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated season. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same season, is counted only once, 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest, 

YIELD is the average production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable quality 
but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors; or tf harvested, was 
not sold or utilized for those reasons. Estimates of acre- 
age and production lost because of economic reasons are 
difficult to define and measure and are not attempted un- 
less such losses become significant. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alent price received on an f, o. b. shipping point basis and 
encompasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 



Included are selling charges, precooling, icing, or other 
costs normally incurred at origin. The value per unit for 
quantities sold to processors is the average value paid for 
usable quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" basis. 
This value includes transportation and other normal costs 
incident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. CuUage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural or 
economic factors are excluded, 

RAIL TRUCK (Piggyback) shipments are included 
in the straight rail shipments shown for each crop. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS represent the average num- 
ber of packages per rail oar based on tabulations of way- 
bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL) — Loadings by stations are 
pro-rated by commodities, using tabulations of waybills 
in prior years, 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis of predetermined load factors. A 
minor difference of car lot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT~The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most commonly 
used container. The following table gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per hun- 
dredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1970-71 VEGETABLE SEASON 



Florida grown vegetables, melons, potatoes, and 
strawberries were valued at 280, 9 million dollars for the 
1970-71 crop year, up 9 percent from the previous season. 
This increase moved value of production up to approxi- 
mately the level of the 1968-69 crop year. Major factors 
contributing to the higher value were increases in yield 
and price per unit for most crops. Planted acreage for 
the 1970-71 crop year was slightly belo^v that of the pre- 
vious season; however, harvested acreage remained about 
the same level due to a lower loss rate for many crops. 

The value of tomatoes produced in Florida increas- 
ed 21, 4 million dollars over the previous year. This was 
the largest increase in value of production of an3^ crop and 
came about in spite of a 16 percent decrease in harvested 
acreage. The average yield rose 44 percent and price per 
unit increased 9 percent over the preceding crop year. 
Tomatoes continue to lead all other crops in value of pro- 
duction. Other crops showing increases in total value 
were snapbeans, sweet com, cucumbers, escarole-endive, 
lettuce, squash, cantaloups, watermelons, and straw- 
berries. On the other hand, celery, cabbage, eggplant, 
green peppers, and potatoes decreased in value of produc- 
tion. Celery exhibited the largest drop, down 5. 2 million 
dollars (21 percent) from the 1969-70 crop year. 

Tomatoes, eggplant, green peppers, snap beans, 
cabbage, and celery showed major increases in yields. 
Potatoes, spinach, cantaloups, and lettuce were the only 
crops with yields below those of the previous season. The 
17 percent reduction in yield on potatoes was the largest 
decrease. 

Crops with increases in price were: watermelons, 
35 percent; escarole, 29 percent; strawberries, 19 per- 
cent; cantaloups, 11 percent; tomatoes, 9 percent; cucum- 
bers, 7 percent; lettuce, 4 percent; potatoes, 3 percent. 
Lower average prices were registered for: celery, down 
32 percent; green peppers, 30 percent; cabbage, 29 per- 
cent; eggplant, 22 percent; snap beans, 14 percent; sweet 
corn, 8 percent; squash, 6 percent; and spinach, down 4 
percent. 

During August and September weather conditions 
were conducive to planting and earlj' crop development. 
Temperatures were close to normal and rainfall was mod- 
erate to heavy over most of the State. 

Conditions were relatively normal in early Octo- 
ber, During the weekend of the 17th and 18th a cool front 
passed through Florida bringing showers and strong gusty 
winds. Temperatures averaged several degrees below 
normal withminimums in the low 50's in northern sections. 
Strong winds prevailed most of the following week. 

Temperatures averaged 4 to 7 degrees below nor- 
mal the first week of November as cold weather moved 
into Florida. The first frost was recorded in the northern 
part of the State and record low temperatures for Novem- 
ber 5 were set at West Palm Beach and equaled at Miami. 
Cold continued in November as a new front moved through 
the State on the 14th and 15th. A frost on the 17tli of No- 
vember severely damaged the remaining tender vegetables 
in North and West Florida, Southern sections sustained 



some wind burn to foliage and minor fruit scarring. Still 
another cold snap brought freezing temperatures to North 
and Central Florida on the 24th with record lows for No- 
vember set at many stations. Little or no precipitation fell. 

Temperatures were normal to above normal during 
December until the 26th and 27th when temperatures fell 
to near or below freezing with scattered frost throughout 
Florida. Another cold front on the 30th and 31st, accom- 
panied by a squall line, brought over 1 inch of rain to 
Northern Florida, 1/2 inch to Central Florida and light 
rain to Southern Florida, Otherwise, rainfall was gener- 
ally light throughout the State during December. 

Above normal temperatures persisted during the 
first two weeks of Januarj'. Moderate accumulations of 
rain fell in North and Northcentral sections. In the third 
week of January, Florida experienced the worst freeze 
since December 1962. Record low temperatures were 
recorded throughout the State on the 20th and 21st. A sec- 
ond cold wave for the month occurred on the 27th and 28th 
with temperatures in the 20's in North and Central sections 
while southern sections recorded readings in the 30' s. 
Duration of freezing temperatures was short. 

Severe weather moved through Florida on the 6th 
and 7th of February, a squall line preceding a cold front 
brought thunderstorms, winds gustingto 90 m. p. h. , isolat- 
ed hail, and tornadoes. North and Central Florida re- 
ceived 3 to 5 inches of rain, while only 1 '2 inch fell over 
southern sections. Another cold fronton the 13th and 14th 
brought upper and mid 20 degree readings to North and 
Central Florida, 

Cold weatlier persisted throughout much of March 
as fronts passed through the State almost weekly, Wideh' 
scattered showers fell during the month, but drought con- 
ditions continued in Central and South Florida, 

During the first half of April, temperatures aver- 
aged below normal. The opposite was true the second half 
with temperatures ranging above normal. Little or no 
rainfell during the month. 

On the 1st and 2nd of May, 1 to 2 inches of rain 
was received in areas south of Lake Okeechobee and in 
Dade Count}', Much needed rainfall was received State- 
wide during the 8th to the 14th of May with accumulations 
averaging 2 inches. Some stations reported 3 to 4 inches, 
with unofficial accounts of 6 inches in Central Florida. 
Southern and Central sections received 1. 5 to 2. inches 
during the 15th to 21st of May. The beneficial rains re- 
ceived during the montli could not entirely offset the effects 
of the prolonged drought. 

Scattered thundershowers prevailed during much 
of June with moderate to heavy accumulation of rainfall 
over most of the State. Some hea\'y thunderstorms with 
hail and damaging winds occurred during the last half of 
the month. During the period June 19 to 25, Palm Beach 
reported over 5 inches of rainfall. 

Data on temperatures and rainfall were supplied 
by ESSA and the Frost Warning Service.

SNAP BEANS 
1970-71 



Florida's production of pole and bush beans totaled 
4. 1 million bushels during the 1970-71 crop year, an in- 
crease of 23 percent over the previous season. Some 
35, 200 acres of snap beans were harvested compared with 
34, 600 the previous season. Snapbeans yielded 115 bushels 
per acre, up 21 percent from the 1969-70 season. 

The average f. o. b. price per bushel received,at 
$4. 38, was down from $5. 09 of the previous season but 
well above other recent years. In terms of total value of 
production, the reduction in price per bushel received was 
more than offset by Increased yields. The value of the 
1970-71 crop was 17. 8 million dollars, a 6 percent In- 
crease over the previous season. 

Snap beans are produced In areas ranging from 
Dade County to Northwest Florida; however, the major 
production areas lie in Southeast Florida, Pole beans are 



produced primarily in Dade County, with some smaller 
acreages grown in other areas. The Pompano area leads 
the State in acres planted; followed by Dade County, North 
Florida, the Everglades area, the North Central area, the 
West Central area, and West Florida. 

Commercial shipments of snap beans begin inOc- 
tober and continue into June. A relatively steady volume 
Is available from November through May, with April tra- 
ditionally the peak month. During 1970-71 crop year, 21 
percent of snap bean shipments moved during April. 

The severe freeze of January 20th and 21st ad- 
versely affected snap bean production. Damage to bush 
beans In the Pompano area was severe, with some acre- 
age lost. Plant condition in Dade County was lowered and 
yields were reduced. Siapbean shipments dropped signifi- 
cantly following the freeze and did not regain the pre-freeze 
level imtil the week ending March 27,

CABBAGE 
1970-71 



Florida growers produced 7, 2 million bags and 
crates of cabbage for fresh market sales during the 1970- 
71 season, 23 percent more than the previous season. 
F. o. b. value of sales at $13. 8 million, however, was 13 
percent less than the record $15. 9 million set during the 
1969-70 season. 

The increased volume is attributed to both an in- 
crease in acreage, and higher yields. A monthly survey 
provided data indicative of acreages transplanted or direct 
seeded. Growers in the Hastings area planted 9,300 acres, 
nearly 50 percent of the State's 18,700 acres. The North 
Central area plantings of 4,570 acres, were nearly 25 per- 
cent of the total. 

Early plant supplies were inadequate to meet plant- 
ing schedules. Most early plants are grown in beds in 



Georgia and theCarolinas where adverse weather reduced 
production. About 90 percent of the acreage is transplanted. 

Weather conditions were generally favorable for 
cabbage production, with the exception of a few cold periods. 
Record low temperatures in late November slowed growth, 
with some damage to young plantings. The severe freeze 
in late January, followed by recurring rain, frosts and 
cold temperatures in February reduced size and quality. 
Selective cutttngbecame necessary, especially in the Hast- 
ings area. This area, with 50 percent of the acreage, mar- 
keted only 44 percent of the State's volume. Yields in the 
Central and Southern areas were generally better than the 
Hastings area. 

Heaviest volume moved to market January through 
April with peak movement in April, F. o. b. prices in May 
and June were quite favorable.

CANTALOUPS 
1970-71 



A total of 1,400 acres of cantaloups were planted 
in 1971, compared with 1,500 acres for the previous sea- 
son. Even though planted acreage was down, harvested 
acreage increased over the 1970 crop. An estimated 1, 300 
acres were harvested, which was up 100 acres from the 
previous year. 

Cantaloup yields at 65 hundredweight per acre, 
were down 7 percent from the 1970 season. The increase 
in harvested acreage, however, offset lower yields, and 
production increased about 1 percent. 



The average price for cantaloups during 1971. at 
$7, 55 per hundredweight, was up 11 percent from the pre- 
vious season. Total value, of $642,000, was up 12 per- 
cent. 

North Florida is the principal area of cantaloup 
production followed by the Southwest area, the West Cen- 
tral area, West Florida, and the North Central area re- 
spectively. Commercial production of cantaloup is heav- 
iest in June, A large portion of the crop is consumed 
within the State,

CELERY 
1970-71 



The 1970-71 celery season In Florida proved to be 
the best in several years in terms of production. Grow- 
ing conditions were close to ideal as the crop yielded 671 
cratesper acre from a"normal" 11,600 acres. This yield 
was the highest since the 1966-67 season. The heavy pro- 
duction of 7. 8 million 60-pound crates, the second largest 
in the past 10 years, shipped atan average f. o. b. price of 
$2. 54 per crate, well below other most recent years. The 
resulting total value of the crop, at $19. 8 million was down 
21 p)ercent from the previous year and the lowest since the 
1966-67 season. 

The Everglades, with about 83 percent of the har- 
vested acreage, is the principal area of production. The 
North Central area (including Island Grove) with about 15 
percent of the acreage also furnishes supplies throu^out 
the season, Sarasota provides the balance of the produc- 
tion, cutting usually from January into May. 

Preparation and seeding of plant bedsbeganin May, 
with first transplants set to fields around August 1. All of 
the crop is transplanted. Planting was completed in the 
Everglades during the week ending April 5. The North 



Central area finished setting plants for the season about 3 
weeks later. 

First cuttings were made during the last v/e*»k of 
October and supplies had reached good volume by early 
December, as yields improved to 700 or more crates per 
acre. Cold weather in January slowed maturity in all areas 
and caused some young plant loss, especially in the North 
Central area. Some skips in April harvesting schedules 
resulted, as did some late-season bolting. More cold 
weather occurred in March, along with some minor wind 
bum. About 9 percent of the planted acreage was not har- 
vested. 

Statewide, harvesting schedules were generally 
steady during the season. From mid-December until late- 
May, the numbe'* of crates harvested from week to week, 
varied more than 10 percent in only 7 weeks. 

Celery is subject to a Federal Marketing Order 
administered by the Florida Celery Committee. Their 
field supervisors provide acreage and production data. In 
cooperation, these data are assembled into weekly and 
monthly reports to the participating industry.

SWEET CORN 
1970-71 



Florida, the largest sweet corn producing State, 
marketed 10. 5 million crates during the 1970-71 season. 
This production was up 12 percent from the previous year 
and the second largest tn a decade. The increased produc- 
tion resulted from heavier plantings which at 71, 600 acres, 
were up 10 percent from the year previous, and a third 
larger than the level of 10 years ago. 

The average f. o, b. return, at $2. 63 per crate was 
down from the $2. 86 of the previous season, but compares 
favorably with other recent years. With a total value of 
sales at $27. 7 million, sweet com is second only to toma- 
toes and contributes nearly 10 percent of the total return 
for all vegetables, potatoes and melons. 

The fall crop is produced in the Everglades, while 
winter supplies are grown primarily in the Pompano and 
Dade County areas. Harvest in the East Coast areas be- 
gins tapering in late April as the Everglades begins mov- 
ing good spring volume. The North Central area (Zellwood) 



furnishes the bulk of the lune volume and starts pulling in 
late May as the Everglades passes their peak. 

First plantings in late Jul> were har\ esting by late 
September. Supplies increased togood fall volume by mid- 
October. Excellent quality and yields made supplies ex- 
cessive, and abandonment of mature acreage continued 
through November. Late January cold temperatures heavily 
damaged both the mature crop and yoving acreages in the 
Pompano-Dade area and reduced plantings in the Ever- 
glades. Interstate movement dropped to below 100 carlots 
weekly through February and most of March. Cold tem- 
peratures March 5. 8 and 21 inflicted additional damage to 
growing crops in the Everglades and early plantings at 
Zellwood, generally too late to replant in the Everglades. 

The spring harvest reached a peak le\ el in the Ever- 
glades during the week ending May 17 and continued at a 
high level into June. Zellwood production started in late 
May and rapidly increased to full volume by June 10, more 
than offsetting the decline in the Everglades. Full volume 
continued throughout June.

CUCUMBERS 
1970-71 



There were 16, 800 acres of cucumbers planted 
during the 1970-71 crop year, although adverse weather 
limited harvesting to 14,100 acres. This represents a 6 
percent reduction in harvested acreage from the previous 
season. Conversely, the average yield per acre increased 
from 174 bushels during 1969-70 to 188 bushels during 
1970-71. Total production at 2, 7 million bushels, was up 
slightly from the previous year. 

The average price per bushel received for cucum- 
bers rose 7 percent, increasing from $3. 93 for 1969-70 
to $4. 20 for 1970-71. Florida's cucumber production for 
the 1970-71 season was valued at 11,1 million dollars, a 
9 percent increase over the previous season. 

The Ft. Myers-Immokalee area is by far the lead- 
ing area in the State, with more than twice the acreage of 
any other area. The West Central section ranks second 
in planted acreage, followed by the Ft, Pierce-Pompano 
area, the North Central area, North Florida, and Dade 
County. A small acreage is also grown in West Florida, 



Harvest of cucumbers begins in September and con- 
tinues through July, Historically, shipments are heaviest 
in November, April and May. with May being the peak 
month. Interstate shipments during the winter months are 
primarily imports. During the 1970-71 se.i.^-.on the months 
of November and May accounted for over half of Florida's 
shipments. 

Cold weather did considerable damage to cucum- 
bers on several occasions during the 1970-71 season. 
Replanting was necessary in many areas of tlie State, A 
frost on the 17th of November and a freeze the following 
week killed or severely damaged plants, terminating har- 
vest in some fields and reducing fall and early winter pro- 
duction potential. The severe freeze on the 20th and 21st 
of January killed all fields which were up and growing iii 
the Immokalee area, necessitating replanting. Some early 
fields in the Wauchula area were also killed. Additional 
freezes in mid-February extensively damaged plantings in 
thePompano. Immokalee, and West Central area, prompt- 
ing further replantir^s. Frost and high winds in March 
killed or damaged plantings in the West Central and North 
Central areas. Replanting was again required.

EGGPLANT 
1970-71 



Total acreage of eggplant in Florida continues to 
show a slight downward trend, with both planted and har- 
vested acreage for the 1970-71 season lower than the four 
precedingcrop years. A total of 1, 950 acres were planted 
during the 1970-71 season, of which 1, 870 acres were har- 
vested. This was a 6 percent reduction in harvested acre- 
age from the preceding season. 

Although harvested acreage showed a decrease, a 
substantial increase in yield caused total production to in- 
crease by 27 percent, rising from 752 thousand bushels in 
1969-70 to 955 thousand bushels in 1970-71. Average yield 
per acre was 511 bushels, 36 percent above the 376 bushels 
per acre obtained during the 1969-70 crop year. 

The average price per bushel for eggplant took a 
sharp dec line , falling 22 percent below the 1969-70 season. 
The 1970-71 season average price perbushel of $2. 81 com- 
pared to S3. 62 for the 1969-70 season. The offsetting ef- 
fects of the increased production and reduced price per 



bushel held value of production at about the same level. 
The 1970-71 crop was valued at 2. 68 million dollars. 1 
percent belo^v the 1969-70 crop valued at 2. 72 million dol- 
lars. 

The Pompano area leads the State in production of 
eggplant. During the 1970-71 season, this area had nearlv 
three times the planted acreage of any other area. In 
terms of planted acreage, the West Central is ranked 
second followed by North Florida, the North Central area, 
and the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area. 

Shipments of eggplant occur throughout the year, 
but are very light from -July through October. Florida 
furnishes practically all of the domestic production dur- 
ing the winter. During the 1970-71 crop j^ear. shipments 
were heaviest during the months of November. December, 
and June. Late winter and early spring shipments were 
reduced by the severe freeze which occurred on January 
20th and 21st. Damage was severe in the Pompano area, 
causing heavy replanting.

ESCAROLE - ENDIVE 
1970-71 



Escarole and endive (chicory) growers combined 
high yields and favorable prices into a highly successful 
season. A 3 percent increase from the previous year in 
acres harvested, and a 4 percent larger yield resulted in 
a production of 3. 4 million crates, the heaviest in this 
decade. The average f. o, b, price at $2. 22 per crate was 
29 percent more than the $1. 72 of the year previous. The 
total value of the crop, at $7. 6 million, was up 39 percent 
from the 1969-70 season and also the largest total value 
received in this decade. 

The Everglades is the principal producingarea with 
72 percent of the planted acreage. Harvest begins in late 
October and supplies are continuous through May, The Zell- 
woodarea, with 24 percent of the planted acreage, harvests 



early and late in the season with very limited supplies dur- 
ing the January-March period. Smaller acreages are grown 
on the Lake Placid and Sarasota mucklands. Seeding was 
underway in August in the E'verglades and Zellwood areas. 
Harvest for local markets began at Zellwood around mid- 
October, and in the Everglades in early November. 

January volume was heavier than usual, with about 
20 percent of the crop moving as compared with about 15 
percent normally. Weather setbacks which can occur dur- 
ing the winter months, were not too severe, although some 
reduction in February volume resulted from the January 
cold spells. Good volume continued through May with the 
Everglades declining during the month and Zellwood cut- 
ting essentially completed by June 1,

LETTUCE 
1970-71 



Florida's lettuce grcfwers produced 451, 000 hun- 
dredweight of lettuce during the 1970-71 season, up 15 per- 
cent from the previous year and largest since the mid- 
fifties. The large crop resulted from increased acreage 
as the average j^eld of 85 cwt. was the lowest since the 
1964-65 season. The average f. o. b, price at $7. 97 was 
"about normal" and resulted in total value of $3. 6 million 
for the crop. This season is difficult to compare with the 
previous j'ear when record plantings of 7,400 acres were 
matched with a huge loss of 3, 000 acres. 

Acreage, production andvalue statisticsfor lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various tj'pesinto a single es- 
timate. These types include the predominant Iceberg and 
Romaine, as well as Boston, Bibb and leaf lettuce. 

The Everglades dominates production, with 68 per- 
cent of the planted acreage. The North Central area, with 
21 percent of the acreage is the other major producing area. 



The Sarasota and Lake Placid mucklands also contribute 
supplies most of the season. 

Direct seeding to fields was underway in September 
along with planting of Iceberg seedbeds for later transplant- 
ing in the North Central area. Scheduled plantings continued 
throughMarch. The Everglades. Sarasota and LakePlarld 
mucks are planted for continuous supplies from November 
through May. The North Central mucks normally drop out 
of production from mid-December until mid-April, with 
limited mid-season supplies grown on the warmer sand- 
lands. 

Light harvest started at Zellwood in late October 
with the Everglades making first cuttings in early Novem- 
ber, Sarasota and Lake Placid followed shortly. Heaviest 
movement came in December and January as cold weather 
in January and March caused reduced volume in the late 
winter months especially in the Everglades. Harvest was 
essentially completed by late May.

GREEN PEPPERS 
1970-71 



Production of green peppers took an upward turn 
during the 1969-70 season, increasing 31 percent above the 
1969-70 season. The 1970-71 production was estimated at 
4. million bushels, compared with 3. 1 million for the 
preceding season. This output still remains below the 6. 6 
million bushel production obtained during the 1967-68 crop 
year. The 1970-71 crop was harvested from 13, 600 acres 
out of 15,400 total acres planted. 

Yield per acre was 294 bushels, 23 percent above 
the 239 bushels for the 1969-70 season. The 294 bushels 
per acre still falls far below the 406 bushels per acre har- 
vested from the 1967-68 crop. 

Although total production of green peppers rose 
significantly, a 30 percent decrease in average price per 
bushel caused the 1970-71 crop value to drop 9 percent be- 
low the 1969-70 crop. Average price per bushel at $4. 35 



was $1, 90 per bushel lower than the average price for tht 
1969-70 crop. The 1970-71 crop was valued at 17. 4 mil- 
lion dollars compared with the 19.2 million dollar valut 
for the 1969-70 crop. 

Commercial shipments of green peppers normally 
begin in October and continue into July. Generally therr 
is a relatively steady flow of shipments from Decembei 
through June. This season, shipments were very light in 
February and March as a result of severe mosaic in tht 
Pompano area and the severe freeze which occurred on 
January 20th and 21st, 

The majority of pepper acreage for the 1970-7] 
season was concentrated in the Ft, Myers-Immokalee and 
Pompano areas. The North Central area ranked third ip 
planted acreage followed by the West Central and Norli 
Florida areas respectively.

POTATOES 
1970-71 



Production of Irish potatoes in Florida during the 
1971 winter-spring season at 4. 9 million hundredweight 
was do\ra 18 percent from the 1970 production and 33 per- 
cent less than the bumper crop harv'ssted in 1969, Red- 
skinned varieties moved primarily into fresh channels 
while whites were grown partly under contract by chipping 
firms, and partly for open market sales to the chip stock 
trade. Only a moderate amount of whites were sold as 
table stock. 



South Florida plantings are classified "winter" but 
har\-est continued into early IMay. Nearly 75 percent of 
the winter's 10, 900 acres was planted to reds, heaviest in 
south Dade County, Late January low temperatures, dry 
weather and wind lowered prospects. Yields of whites at 
Ft, Myers - Immokalee were especialh- disappointing. 
Quality of Dade County reds was excellent: size wasbelow 
normal for optimum yields, but desirable from the consum- 
ers' s stand point. The winter yield was much below normal.

POTATOES (continued) 
1970-71 



Hastings early spring plantings, at 23,100 acres, 
were about 6 percent less than the previous year's acre- 
age. Recurring frost and prolonged cold January 20 through 
March, plus heavy rains February 7-8 and again in early 
April lowered prospects such that the average yield, at 
132 cwt. , was the lowest since the disasterous crop of 
1967, The resulting production of 3. million cwt. was 
25 percent less than in 1970 and nearly 38 percent less 
than in 1969. Total value of production at $11,2 million 
was only about 18 percent less than each of those higher 
producing seasons. 



"Other Spring" plantings were widely scattered 
and often grown by just one commercial grower in a count} 
Yields were light. The largest concentration of acreagt 
was grown in south Hillsborough, north Manatee area. 

Prices during the winter season averaged slightl\ 
lower than during the previous winter. The 1965 wintei 
f. o. b. average at $5. 50 per cwt, apparently set a record. 
Hastings tubers averaged 30 cents per cwt, over the pre- 
vious early spring price.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1971 



In 1971, 1,700 acres of spinach were harvested, 
200 acres higher than the corresponding figure for 1970. 
Average yield fell from 76 hundredweight per acre in 1970 
to 70 hundredweight per acre in 1971. Production rose 
from 5,700 tons in 1970 to 5,950 tons in 1971; however, 
the average price for spinach fell causing value of produc- 
tion to remain unchanged at $259, 000. 



Spinach for processing is grown on the mucklands 
of Orange and Lake Counties. Utilization is mainly by 
processing plants located in the southeastern States. The 
value per unit is for usable spinach on a delivered to plant 
basis. 

The severe freeze in late January reduced spinach 
yields and resulted in some acreage loss.

S3UASH 
1970-71 



Squash acreage planted in Florida increased for 
the third consecutive season, totaling 9, 800 acres. Of the 
total, 8,700 acres were harvested, a 4 percent increase 
over the previous season. The combination of increased 
acreage harvested and higher yields resulted in a 14 per- 
cent rise in total production. Production for 1970-71 was 
1. 3 million bushels compared with 1. 1 million bushelsfor 
the 1969-70 season. Average yield increased from 131 
bushels per acre to 145 bushels per acre. 

The season average price per bushel at $4, 78 com- 
pares with $5. 08 for the preceding year. In spite of the 
lower average price, total value of the squash crop in- 
creased 7 percent over the previous season. Value of the 
1970-71 squash crop was 6. million dollars. 



Shipments of squash were recorded in each month 
throughout the year: however, heaviest movement occurs 
from November through May. During the 1970-71 season, 
shipments were highest in May. when 18. 6 percent of the 
crop was shipped. 

The southeastern area of the State is the dominant 
area in squash production, with Dade County having the 
highest concentration of squash acreage in the State. The 
Southwest area is second in plantings, closely followed by 
the West Central area. Squash is also available in the 
spring, from the Central areas north into West Florida. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck. white, and zucchini squash.

STRAWBERRIES 
1970-71 



Florida strawberry growers planted and harvested 
1,600 acres, some 200 acres less than the preceding sea- 
son. Average yield increased from 781 to 927 flats per 
acre, resulting in a larger total production from the 
smaller harvested acreage. Total productionfor the 1970- 
71 season was 1, 483, 000 flats, 6 percent higher than the 
1,405,000 flats produced during the 1969-70 crop year. 

The season average price for strawberries was 
$3. 57 per flat, higher than any of the four preceding sea- 
sons. 

This season's crop is valued at 5. 3 million dollars, 
25 percent higher than the 4. 2 million dollar crop produced 
during the 1969-70 season. 



Over one-half of the strawberry acreage is in the 
West Central section. Dade County has the second largest 
acreage, followed by the North Florida area. Small acre- 
ages are also grown in other areas. The West Central 
section received extensive damage to fruit and bloom from 
the severe freeze in late January, reducing production 
during the following two months. 

Shipments of strawberries were recorded from De- 
cember into June, however, nearly all volume moved dur- 
ing the January through April period. March is normally 
the peak month for shipments. Over 44 jjercent of all 
strawberry shipments for the 1970-71 season moved dur- 
ing this month. About two-thirds of the total production is

TOMATOES 
1970-71 



Tomatoes continue to lead all other vegetables in 
total value of production. The 1970-71 crop value was 
79. 2 million dollars, 37 percent higher than the preceding 
season andwell over t^vice the value of any other individual 
vegetable crop. Total production was 16. 3 million equiv- 
alent 40 pound crates, 24 percent higher than the 1969-70 
season. Of this total 14. 6 million crates were utilized in 
the fresh market while 1, 8 million crates went into proc- 
essing. 

Plantings for the 1970-71 season were down 19 per- 
cent with only 43, 000 acres planted compared with 52, 800 
acres for the previous season. Of the total acreage plant- 
ed, 40,700 acres were harvested. The higher production 
was a result of increased yields, since harvested acreage 
dropped 6,700 acres from the 1969-70 season. Average 
yield per acre was 402 crates, up 44 percent from the 279 
crates recorded for the 1969-70 season. 



The average price per crate for both fresh market 
and processing uses increased over the 1969-70 season. 
Tomatoes for fresh market brought an f.o.b. average of 
$5. 35 per crate for the previous season. This price was 
higher than any of the twelve previous seasons. Average 
price per crate for processing increased from $0. 65 in 



1969-70 to $0.69 for the 1970-71 season, on a delivered 
to plant basis. 

Commercial shipments of tomatoes began in No- 
vember and continued through June, with some light move- 
ment in July. Shipments reached a high point in May, when 
21. 6 percent of the crop moved. December was the second 
highest volume month, with 19.3 percent of the recorded 
shipments, 

Dade County leads the State in tomato acreage, fol- 
lowed by the Ft, Pierce-Pompano area, the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area, and the West Central area. A small 
acreage of ground tomatoes is grown in the North Central 
area, and in North and West Florida. 

Nearly all tomato areas experienced some adverse 
weather during the 1970-71 season. In September, Dade 
County lost and reseeded about 1. 000 acres due to intense 
heat and lack of moisture. The severe freeze in late Jan- 
uary caused damage to the crop in all areas, with damage 
ranging from foliage burn and bloom drop, to complete 
acreage loss. During February, further damage was 
caused by frosts and high winds. During the first week of 
March, the North Central and West Central areas ex- 
perienced severe damage and plant loss as a result of high 
winds.

WATERMELONS 
1970-71 



Florida growers produced 7, 515, 000 hundredweight 
of watermelons during the 1970-71 season, a 9 percent in- 
crease over the previous crop year. The increased pro- 
duction resulted from a 5 percent increase in harvested 
acreage and a 3 percent increase in yield. Slightly over 
50,000 acres were harvested, yielding an average of 150 
cwt. per acre. 

The average price per cwt, was $2. 72, 35 percent 
higher than the $2. 02 realized a year earlier. Total value 
of production was 20. million dollars, 47 percent above 
the 13. 9 million dollar value placed on the 1969-70 crop. 
Both average price per cwt. and total value of production 
were the highest in the past decade. 

Shipments of Florida watermelons began in April 
and finished in July. Over 69 percent of the season's ship- 
ments occurred in June. 



Watermelon production starts in the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area around April 1 and progresses through 
Central areas during May. North Florida furnishes heavy 
June marketings. West Florida's harvest begins in June 
and continues well into July. 

Coldweather set the cropback on several occasions 
during the 1970-71 season. The severe freeze in late Jan- 
uary damaged or killed plants in the Ft, Myers-tmmoka- 
lee and West Central areas. Extensive replanting was 
necessary. Cold temperatures, frost and winds in mid 
and late February caused further damage to the water- 
melon crop. Replanting was necessitated from the Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee area to the North Central area. Seed- 
ing in North and West Florida was delayed by the adverse 
weather. The replanting and delayed planting resultinij 
from the adverse weather during early 1971 caused initial 
production to be lower than normal. Volume was relative!^ 
low during April and May, however, the delay caused 
June's volume to be above normal.
